The Iowa 80 Trucking Museum was a dream of Iowa 80 Truckstop founder Bill Moon. His love for trucks and the trucking industry laid the foundation for this museum. Over 60 vintage trucks are on display, as well as antique signs and gas pumps. The museum also features the REO Theatre where visitors can enjoy watching films about trucks and trucking.

Stopped here on our way home from a family vacation. All in our family of 4 enjoyed spending an hour and a half there looking the displays over. It is well kept and it was a busy place.

What a great stop. This is a terrific history of trucking, and trucks. Just off I 80, next to "the largest truck stop in the world " it is easy to get to. Started in 2008, they seem to be in a constant expansion mode....More

We saw this place by surprise on way home in May, so we pulled off exit, we drove by and saw it wasn't open, disappointed, so we went to the "mall" in stead. In June we made sure we stopped again on way home, and...More

This is a donation only admission. It will take awhile to look at all the old trucks. We had not heard of it until we stopped at the truck stop.

We just happen to stop in Walcott and came across this trucking museum by chance. Wow what a gem! Both my husband and I were very interested and pleased to see all the old style trucks. Well worth seeing!

I was at the ATHS in Iowa. I stopped at the Iowa 80 truck stop (very nice) and then at the Iowa 80 museum. The museum was just perfect in every way. Very nice. Great place.
